15 aug 2007, 16:05Tue 14 Aug – Godsmack
Fuck. Secondly: Fuck. Thirdly: Fuck. Okay on the review. Apparently The Bear had a contest where all the local bands submitted videos to their website and allowed the public to vote, at which point they sent the top videos to Godsmack themselves, who hand picked their opening act. Local Edmonton band Order of Chaos got the gig. Amanda is one crazy badass rocker chick, she can definitely hold her own on the stage, either singing so you can hear the words or screeching; and Tim(?), the drummer, was awesome. Anyway on to Godsmack and the IV Tour. So before Godsmack took the stage they had this video montage of concert footage and backstage video set to For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) and then at the end they tied into a minicam and came out to the crowd and then back to the dressing room and followed the band out live. They opened with The Enemy, probably my favorite track on IV, if not favorite Godsmack song altogether. They had cool video montages spread throughout the show as well, playing such hits as (in no particular order: Livin' In Sin, Straight Out of Line, Vampires, Voodoo, Speak, and Moon Baby. The encore consisted of both Shine Down and I Stand Alone. About 3/4 of the way through the concert they brought out another drum set and both Sully and Shannon did some classic rock dueling drum shit, among playing some wicked music at the same time. P.S. Shannon is fuckin amazing on the drums. All in all a fairly intimate concert as it was at the Jubilee and Godsmack know how to rock.

Hottest Chicks in Metal Tour: Edmonton
30 maj 2007, 15:17Tue 22 May – Drowning Pool, Chunk, State Of Shock
Local homeboy trifecta Chunk opened the night off with some killer shit and rocked hard for about 30 minutes. They were followed by State Of Shock who started out playing some retarded melodramatic bullshit that turned everyone to the Anaheim/Detroit hockey game, luckily they redeemed themselves with their last 4 or 5 songs. Finally Drowning Pool hit the stage. At least half the set was stuff from their upcoming album (3 years in the making), however, they played the classics: Bodies, Tear Away, Sinner, and Step Up.

Black Orchid was the opening act for what the show that I was really lloking forward too. When I had originally bought the tickets I had no idea who was actually going to be the guests. When I found out it was Evanescence with Stone Sour I got really excited.
Solid performance all around, my only complaint is that we were directly beside the subwoofers so therefore the sound was a little muddy. A+ on all fronts, even my mom had fun!

This event started out with solid performances from both Sick City and It Dies Today.
With a fantastic opening sequence of ...To Be Loved and Getting Away With Murder Coby and band rocked the house for a good 40 minutes. Coby was even up on the bar tops for aa couple of the songs.
Very awesome night. Would recommend a live Papa Roach show to anyone.
